ASSOCIATION OF CVOS WITH WORK OF DEPARTMENTAL DUTIES, HANDLING SENSITIVE MATTERS.
The vigilance functionaries should not be a party to processing and decision making process or in other similar administrative transactions of such nature which are likely to have a clear vigilance sensitivity. While it should not be difficult for full time vigilance officers to comply with this requirement by disassociating themselves with decision making process in the substantive work of sensitive nature in their organisations, similar compliance of these instructions could be achieved in respect of part time vigilance functionaries also by confining their duties (other than those connected with vigilance work), as far as possible to such items of work, that are either free from vigilance angle or preferably serve as input to vigilance activity, for example, inspections and audit etc.
